The John Montagu Bar

Named after Mr John Montagu (it is often erroneously thought he was "Sir") is the Hotel's main "watering hole" and is open primarily to resident guests.

A vast array of drinks are on offer and our staff will gladly mix up an exotic cocktail or advise you on a choice of regional and other South African Table wines from our extensive Wine List.

A speciality of this wine list is that in each category of wines listed, we offer you one wine by the glass. This allows you to sample a small quantity before committing to the whole bottle or any particular type of wine.

Air-conditioned, "The JM", is the ideal meeting place for a pre-dinner drink or a winter's evening spent chatting, playing games or just watching sports on the big screen "telly" in front of a crackling log fire.

The Avacabana Pool Bar

Situated at the main hot spring pool, next to our Function Lapa (Boma) is "The Place To Be" on a hot summer's day. Covered by cool African thatch, you can sit back, enjoying a loooong, cold drink and still keep an eye on the kids in the pools, whilst taking in the stunning natural rock setting of the entire hot spring pool complex.

In the late afternoon, you will be delighted at the many different animals that appear on the rocks high above the pools and unless you are super human, you will simply "just have to let go" of all your worries and woes.

Depending on the weather (which 99% of the time is brilliant), The Avacabana is open on most days throughout the year and on most evenings in summer.

Health Spa

In the fast pace of today's world where everyone is under constant pressure, why not take some time off to come and relax.

The health, body and beauty treatments in this establishment has been rapidly growing in popularity over the past 12 years and has become well known for helping certain conditions such as migraines, circulation problems, stress related conditions, insomnia, arthritis etc.
